Solar Plate Etching Masterclass
We are delighted to welcome Susie Turner back to the workshop for this Solar Plate etching masterclass. This will introduce a technique that is simple, safe and versatile. Solar plate uses light-sensitive plates which are exposed to sunlight or artificial UV light and then developed in tap water. The plates allow fine detail and a wide tonal range using photographic imagery, hand-drawn originals and the direct use of found material. You will learn how to make solar plates suitable for relief, blind emboss and intaglio printing.
